This is the 15th book in the Sweep series. I've read the other 14 but it's been at least a couple years(the library finally got this one in).Night's Child takes place after Morgan is out of high school.She has left America and has started a new life in Ireland to put the coven back together that her birth mother had belonged to. She loses her soulmate Hunter in an accident. Now skip ahead 16 years and she's still living in Ireland widowed(she married a man named Colm who dies in a car accident) with a 15 year old daughter and faces new evils that she thought she had escaped forever in America.We see the story throught two characters,Morgan and her daughter Moira. This book basically ties all the pieces together in the series so we're not left wondering what happens long after the 14th book.Morgan learns things aren't what she thought and Moira learns the true powers of her mom(one of the most powerful witches walking the earth) If you're a fan of the Sweep series already then chances are you'll like this book. I love the Sweep series it's been on of my favorites for the past 7 years.I liked this book,it satisfied me and gave me what I wanted to know.

I thought that this was a great way to end the series. I'm so sad thats it over. I admit to crying alot through this book. Morgan and Hunter are up with Romeo and Juliet for me. LOVED IT!

Cate Tiernan had me from book #1. I could never put the any of the books down I would open them up and start reading as soon as I had it in my hands, and every time I finished one I had my mom rush me to the book store to get the next one in the series. I love every character and I love how I always felt like I was really inside the story like I was watching through there eyes everything that was going on. I cried I laughed I smiled these books were really something and I could never stop talking about them. Every time I got one of the books I would tell my friends not to bother calling me because I'd be in a whole different world while I was reading and I wouldn't be outside for a day or two. Cate Tiernan is really a truly amazing writer and I liked these books better then I liked the Twilight series and thats a hard thing to accomplish. I highly recommend you read this series if you haven't already.

I have read this entire series and the whole series rocked. My whole family had to deal with my excitement through the whole thing. In this last book, I was planning to slow down and savor it but as the story took off I found that I couldn't put it down. Usually as you continue through a series they get more and more laid back but not the case here. I laughed, I cried, I was ready to read it all over again. The only thing that bothered me was I had a couple questions about how things turned out for some of the characters from the other books and found there was no follow up to them, Alyssa being one of them and she was only mentioned twice, so I still don't know what happened with her uncontrollable telekinesis. Still I loved it. I am just sorry to see it end.

The entire Sweep Series is fantastic. I even loved the books that were not told by Morgan. I have to admit my least favorite of the whole series was Night's Child. I felt Hunter was made to be too weak and I didn't like every other chapter being told from the daugher's point of view. I felt that going from 17 to 37 was a huge jump and there could of been so much more told if broken down. I recommend the entire series and book #5, #6, and #7 are my favorites.

it killed me to read the proluge and continue because i didnt want to believe it. the the ending made it all better. with the difficult life she has had as a teen and being who she is makes this last book so fitting that it shouldnt be happily ever after after high school. but this book finally gives her that and with perfect timing. and of course there is a dangerous adventure for her to arrive there.

I love this book so far! I'm not wiccan but I'm so interested in it. I love the story line in all the books. It keeps you wanting more, but sometimes thats a bad thing.

This book was the third best in the series! I loved it! I wish Cate Tiernan would write a sequel to this particular book! In the beginning this book made me cry it was so sad because of all Morgan suffers. then the end made me want to scream and laugh it was a good ending!

to be honest...i was very disappointed with this book. dont get me wrong i still liked it. It was just that i was expecting better. I do recomend this book to everyone it's just if you were expecting a smashing sequal to the 14th book..this isn't it.

Cate really outdid herself with Night's Child! Night's Child takes place twenty years after the last book, full circle. It tells the point of view of Morgan and her daughter. I absolutely loved this book and I hope Cate writes another sweep book, thought this is most likely her last!

I had been waiting SO long for this book to come out, and I was so happy when I was finally able to bring it home and read it. Afterwards, I felt kind of disappointed with the result. Most of the old coven from Widow's Vale is only mentioned, and I was so mad! I wanted to see everybody again! I wanted to know what was going on! I mean, if you're going to shove us many years into the future, you should at least fluff ist up a bit... Even though a lot of my characters were gone...(sigh)... I still loved this book. All the elements of Sweep were there, and I was glad that it was so long (though many of the parts with Moira are tedious and slightly pointless...it would have been better with Morgan as the MAIN character). I only wish that this series would keep going! I'm going to miss it so much! Hats off to Cate Tiernan!

I absolutely love this entire series. If I thought they could do it justice, I'd say I'd love to see the entire series made into a movie. It's spot on with the relationships between characters. I read this series in high school and again just now at 25. I can really relate to Morgan and if it's possible to truly love a fictional character- I love Hunter Niall. :) Great, great series. Totally relatable and the fact that it is YA fiction means nothing. I'm still emotionally attached and would recommend this series to anyone. They're all short enough to read in a few hours and I think I read the entire thing over the course of 3 days. (I apologize to my family ;-D )

At first I was apprehensive by the large time gap in the story line. But after finishing this book I was very happy with the results. SWEEP truly is an epic story that brings together the daily problems of a teenager's life and the fantasies of our deepest thoughts and dreams through self discovery and self sacrifice. The help of a little magick doesn't hurt either. A great find that I will recommend anyone to read.

I read the reviews of others when buying this book. I had read that #15 would only ruin the series. I was very hesitant, but knew I would read it, because who comes this far and not finish? To me this was the most well written book of the series. It does take you ahead 20 years, has some sad parts and some parts you would like to re-write, but I thought it ended well,(at least the way I wanted it to). I will def. re-read this series one day!!
